Shawn is an experienced vocalist with hundreds of hours of experience in the studio laying down vocals on many songs spanning a variety of EDM subgenres from Dance Pop and House to Melodic/Future Bass. Look no further for the emotive vocal, lyrics and top-line melodies you need to complete your song.

Meet Shawn O’Donnell, a singer-songwriter from Pennsylvania (now based in Los Angeles, CA) with a unique sound that infuses his alt-rock roots with melodic pop. Shawn spent the beginning of his solo music journey making YouTube Cover Videos that span a variety of vocal and instrumental styles amassing over 100,000 views. After years of honing in on the craft of songwriting and producing he decided to release his first original song ‘Quicksand’ in June 2020. In February 2021, his collaboration with SHKHR was signed to Loud Memory (record label owned by Sony) catapulting to over 1 million streams across all platforms. Shawn's vocals have graced the stages of local clubs to massive international stages like the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, CA to sold out Japan nightclubs and Music Festival Stages such as Stereobloom at EDC Mexico.

"The first thing you capture at that first listen to the song is Shawn’s nearly perfect and natural voice. And what’s more, is that Shawn has that songwriter’s mentality that knows exactly what not only compliments his voice musically but what music can surround that vocal prowess to become an all-encompassing self-made style that lets the listener in and welcomes them to the next experience of their life." - Jammerzine

"Shawn is a young singer with loads of potential." - ANR Factory

  1. Review by Zahari M.

    I needed a vocal style somewhere between Chester Bennington and Charlie Puth, and Shawn was perfect for that. Shawn has an awesome voice and vocal skills. He brought new life into my song. During the process he was very professional and quick to react and respond to comments. Highly recommend.

    Shawn was a huge help to our company. We had a song that needed the proper session musician and luckily a mutual friend referred us. Within two days we had the vocals we had asked for and then some! Already in discussion to hire him for more projects in the future.

  20. Review by Luke Anderson

    I recently played some bass for Shawn and he was a blast to collaborate with. Chill guy, and excellent producer. If he wants you to work with him you absolutely should.
